PowerAMP: Finally, A Decent Android Music Player – Almost

Despite having a music player built in, and many different players available in the Market, Android still doesn’t have a decent music player. Sure there are a lot of options, but none of them looks good and has all the features that we’ve come to expect in a first-class music player. Even Nullsoft’s inappropriately named WinAmp for Android falls short of our expectations. Developers…

Maybe Joe Levi? That's not my name

A co-worker of mine was in the break room last week and heard That’s not my name by The Ting Tings. It’s a catchy song with a strong beat. Apparently she misheard some of the lyrics… They call me “quiet girl” but I’m a riot Mary-Jo-Lisa Maybe Joe Levi Always the same That’s not my name That’s not my name…

More Cowbell

Every once in a while a great web application comes along. It’s easy to use, laid out with a beautifully simple in its user interface, does what it’s supposed to do (and nothing else). MoreCowbell.dj is one of those sites. MoreCowbell.dj has you upload an MP3 and adjust two sliders, “cowbell” and “Walken,” and and upload button. You wait while…

Separation of Topics

I’m trying to separate my articles by placing them on the site that they’re most applicable. Hopefully this will help each site be more relative to its visiting audience. This means my posts will be split between (presently) three sites: www.JoeLevi.com: “Greener Living through Technology,” local involvement/activism, self-defense, and self-reliance. Natalie.JoeLevi.com: personal and family stuff, Asperger’s Disorder/Asperger’s Syndrome, parenting, raising…
